2nd Call for Papers - IEEE ICSC 2013

7th IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing
September 16-18, 2013, Irvine, CA, USA

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society


Regular Paper Submission: May 10
Demo Descriptions: May 10
Posters: May 10

(all other deadlines have already passed)
The field of Semantic Computing addresses the derivation of semantic
information from content and the connection of semantics to knowledge,
where "content" may be anything ncluding structured data, video, audio,
text, hardware, software, process, etc.

The Seventh IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC
2013) continues to foster the growth of a new research community. The
conference builds on the success of the past ICSC conferences as an
international forum for researchers and practitioners to present
research that advances the state of the art and practice of Semantic
Computing, as well as identifying emerging research topics and defining
the future of the field. The event is located in Irvine, California, at
Irvine Hyatt.

The technical program of ICSC 2013 includes workshops, invited keynotes,
paper presentations, panel discussions, industrial 'show and tells',
demonstrations, and more. Submissions of high-quality papers describing
mature results or ongoing work are invited.

The main goal of the conference is to foster the dialog between experts
in each sub-discipline. Therefore we especially encourage submissions of
work that is interesting to multiple areas, such as multi-modal approaches.
